Along with childhood friends Andy Samberg and Akiva Schaffer, Taccone is one-third of the sketch comedy troupe The Lonely Island which has produced many of the SNL Digital Shorts. In 2010, he co-wrote and directed MacGruber, a parody of 80s action films in which Will Forte revived and expanded one of his enduring SNL characters. The two comedians talk about making the life journey from independent creative artists to Saturday Night Live and beyond.
